Sale of Student
Directories Will
Be Started Today
Student directories for this year will
go on sale this morning at the center
and opposite ends of the diagonal.
With the 3,000 copies available, the
same number was printed last year, it
is expected that the entire supply will
soon be exhausted.
In addition to the flaming red cover
which will distinguish it from those
of previous years, the book is featured
with a revised map of Ann Arbor
showing the greater part of the city.
Location of prominent buildings and
houses of social organizations has
been made easier by use of the
alphabetical method of listing.
In preparing the usual student,
faculty, and organizations sections of
the directory, the editors have taken
efforts to make the information rela-
tive to each as complete and as ac-
curate as possible. All data on stu-
dents has been taken from the files
of the Registrar.
The book will sell for 75 cents.

Explains Diagrams
Dr. Guertler's lecture was illu-
strated with slides to better explain
the complicated diagrams of the con-
stitution of metals. His lecture was a
summary of the course which he gives
to his students in Germany and which
covers two hours per week for a half
To get a general survey of the.
properties of new metal combinations
it is necessary to know the constitu-j
tional diagrams of the combinations,1
according to Dr. Guertler. In case of!
the mechanical properties, the effect
of the structure must also be known.
Alloys with more than two constit-
uents are so complicated that a suffici-t
number of systems cannot be covered
over all ranges of composition. There-
fore, a method of finding the necessary
information with the minimum amount
of experiment must necessarily be
developed; for example, solubility in
the molten state, the formations of
solid solutions, the occurence of,
brittle phases, and the occurrence of
new phases which. behave as a new!
element as compared to the purej
metals and which might have new
properties. The solution to thesei
problems, Dr. Guertler explained by
means of his numerous diagramed
lantern slides of alloys containing
three constituents.

Dr. Guertler began his study of the
science of alloys during the first partI

Maentz Addresses
Freshman Groupsl

Addressing for the first time this
year a convocation of University wo-
men alone, President Clarence Cook
Little made a plea that the women
organize and utilize the forces of their
organization in the establishment of a
definite stand on all questions of co-
educational life. He spoke to more
than 1,000 women assembled at the
Union last night. Arguing that it is
in their power to carry out this pro-
ject, President Little outlined in brief
some of the causes for failure, some
of the drawbacks of present standards.
He continued with a discussion of
the value of proportion in all things.
Comments On University
In commenting on Michigan's posi-
tion as a university, President Little
said: "An institution like Michigan is
placed where it can form a fusion of
east and west, drawing the best from
all and creating a unique force
throughout the country." He spoke
further upon the work of the advisers
of women, Miss Alice Lloyd, Miss
Grace Richards, and Miss Beatrice
Johnson, as well as Mrs. Norma Mans-
field, assistant adviser of women.
President Little also introduced Miss
Doris Twitchell and Miss Ellen Steven-
son, the former specializing in a study
of the different levels of the educa-
tional system, and the latter working
on the housing problems of women on

President Little praised highly the
work of Mrs. Henderson, and partic-
ularly the standards which she has
set by the spirit in which she works.'
Miss Evelyn Murray, '27, president
of the Women's league, introduced the
speakers. After the meeting everyone
was given the opportunity to meet
President Little, Mrs. Henderson, the
advisory committee, Miss Twitchell,
and Miss Stevenson.

Rossiter To Carry
On Work Of Hussey
President Makes Announcement After
Conference With Benefactor
Dr. Richard A. Rossiter, associate
professor of astronomy, is to carry on
the work of the Lamont astronomical
expedition which was begun by the
late Prof. William J. 'Hussey, who
died in London while enroute to
Bloemfontein, South Africa, where he
intended to establish an observatory
I for the study of double stars, accord-
ig to President Clarence Cook Little
who conferred with Robert P. Lamont,
91E, the benefactor of the expedition.
The decision reached during the
conference was that Dr. Rossiter, who
accompanied Professor Hussey and
who at present is in England, is to
carry on the work. Since Dr. Rossiter1
has been closely associated with Pro-I
fessor Hussey during his preparation
for the trip, Professor Hussey's plans
will be carried out.
Dr. Rossiter has been instructed to
go on to Bloemfontein to select a site
for the construction of the observa-
tory, in the meantime Prof. Ralph H.
Curtiss, professor of astronomy and
assistant director of the observatory,
and Henry J. Colliau, foreman of the
observatory instrument shop will go
to Pittsburgh to pick a dome for the
observatory. Mr. Calliau will then
join Dr. Rossiter in South Africa
where he will take charge of the con-
struction of the observatory. Mr.
Calliau has for many years been con-

Gerrit Masselink Is Outnumbered
Nearly 3 to 1; Remainder Of
Democratic Ticket Weak
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Nov. 2.-Fred W. Green,
mayor of Ionia, had virtually a 2 to 1
advantage over William A. Comstock,
formerly Democratic state chairmanj
on the basis of early returns from
the state's 2,983 precincts reported
late last night.
The returns were scattering from 34
of the state's 83 counties. They gave
Green 20,782, and Comstock 10,845.
Although trailing his Republican
opponent, Comstock was showing sur-
prising strength as compared with the
rest of the Democratic ticket. For
lieutenant-governor, Gerrit Masselink,
Democrat, was outnumbered nearly
three to one by the Republican, Luren
E. Dickinson of Charlotte. John Hag-
gerty of Detroit was even further
ahead of Mrs. Catherine Doran, the
only woman candidate in the contest
for the secretaryship of state.
Wayne county (Detroit), always
late in reporting returns, was not
represented in the early returns. Polls
in Detroit did not close until 8 o'clock,
eastern standard time.
In a few counties, early returns in-
dicated Green was going over with a
vote not far from unanimous. In Delta
county, Comstock polled only four
votes to Green's fifty eight in one
precinct reported. Upper peninsula
counties particularly were Green
strongholds, his margin being especi-
ally high in Delta, Houghton and
Comstock lost an early lead in
Kalamazoo county when additional
precincts reported and trailed there
by 200 votes, with one sixth of the
county in.
Early returnp were so fragmentary
that an accurate gauge of the trend of
battle was impossible. Comstock, for
example, had a lead of 100 votes- over
the Ionia, man in Arenac county, butt
the 19 precincts unheard from would
easily overturn it. The same was true
in Bay county, normally Republican,
where six out of thirty seven precincts
gave Comstock a slight lead.
Explorer Gives Second Lecture Of
Oratorical Series
Telling a story of thrilling interest,
l embodying the experiences of a recent,
expedition to eastern Yucatan, where
amazing evidences of a prehistoric
American civilization were 'discovered,
Gregory Mason, author and explorer,
!gave the second lecture on the Ora-
Itorical association lecture course last
night in Hill auditorium.
In his lecture, which was illustrated
I with colored stereopticon pictures and
moving pictures, Mr. Mason expressed
the opinion that the Maya's civiliza-
tion was the highest that ever flour-
ished in the New World before the
coming of the white man, and even
in some respects higher than the
white men who conquered them. This
statement Mr. Mason supported with
evidences of the advances in the May-
an civilization, such as astronomical
sciences and a very accurate calender,
which according to a Washington
scientist is superior to our own mod-
Sern calender.
It is true that certain character-
tstics of the Yucatan civilization re-
semble the civilization of the Old
World, but this is purely accidental,
Mason asserted. "The Maya Indians
were not originally an off-shoot of
the lost continent of Atlantis or of
Africa; there is no proof of the exist-
ence of an Atlantis or any other con-
nection between Africa and Central
America. It is the consensus of opin-
ion of archaeologists that the ancient
civilization in Yucatan was the work
of an absolutely native race of Indians
that originated in the highlands of
Mexico, where Mexico City now
stands," continued Mason.

Mr. Mason was astounded at the
fact that thousands of American tour-
ists are attracted every year to the
ruins of Egypt and Greece while very
few Americans are aware of the relics
